There's already a cppzmq project, so presumably use some other name.

It's your project, so you have to decide about stuff like licensing 

There's a "binding guidelines" wiki pages which deals mostly with the 
API. The current practice boils down to balancing similarity with C API 
(to make all the language bindings similar and thus easy for programmers 
to switch from one language to another) and adhering the API 
conventions/patterns of the particular language.
